    Disney files patent for possible Avatar Land technology:

    There's no clear indication in the patent that it's related to the Avatar expansion, but the patent, called User Interactive Living Organism s, describes "capacitive sensing to detect human interaction with living plants" and provide an experience that "may be an audio or video effect that is based on the type of user interaction such as whether the user touched the plant's leaf or stem" — so it's safe to say it may be Avatar.

    Photo is captioned as: Photo "shows how a person may interact with a tree and it could have a response where an audio element is played."

    This video is mainly focussed on Rivers of Light but it shows the Avatarland area from the outside (with the show building in the front) which is a new view for me. That big grey/brown building is the one which is themed fully with boulder work along the front.

    Ran the half marathon this morning and saw the construction at Animal Kingdom. Shame the route didn't go past the construction inside the park but still new pictures from the car park and it's looking very good!
